[05/30/15] What a great conference. The Pilates community never ceases to amaze me with their love, support, and non-judgement. Every time I attend a conference I am reminded of how blessed I am to work with and learn from Kathryn Coyle and Zoey Trap!
Started the conference week off right with a beautiful run by the beach. Followed by 150 BW squats, 150 BW lunges, 100 bridges, and 100 squat thrusts. Boot Camp, that one is for you:)! Excited to be attending the Pilates Empowerment Conference and WSSC! Lots of learning going on!
Happy Mother's Day!
Pull out the tissues!

Happy Monday!! New day. New week. New opportunities. Enjoy it!! :)
Almost 13 years ago, my brother woke up one day a totally different person than he went to bed. Since then, his life has never been the same. Brain injuries isolate people and truly destroy their quality of life. Taylor has been blessed with the opportunity to get a service dog. This dog, Riggs, will be his companion, best friend, and someone who is just his buddy. Taylor will never get to have this relationship with any human being. Please join my family and I in helping him get a service dog. Thank you for your support.
